Fellowes POWERSHRED 63Cb Review – sponsored #MC

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Fellowes. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

It’s been nearly 4 months since we’ve moved and I cannot believe the amount of papers and documents we already have cluttering up our office space. You know all those HIPPA forms from all the new doctors and dentists, the supplemental forms we needed for our mortgage, and of course I’m always getting papers and contracts for my blog.  We have a pretty good file organization system but I’ll tell you a little secret …we’re kind of paperwork pack rats.  Meaning we keep papers way longer than we need to.  You can go through my file cabinet and you’ll find receipts, forms and papers from the early 90’s.  UGH!

Since we needed to make room in our files for all the new things here in Texas, and so we had to dispose of everything that we still had from South Dakota.  Oh yes we had nearly 14 years of utility bills, school paperwork and receipts that really needed to be shredded.  And I’m not joking when I say we had a stack of prepaid debit cards, hotel room and cruise line keys about three inches high!  Besides trying to pare down on the clutter that all that paper makes, we really need to be proactive in shredding things that have sensitive information that can be used for identity theft.

I had the opportunity to review a Fellowes POWERSHRED 63Cb Shredder.  I was really excited because the last one we had was pretty old already and there is no way it would have been able to handle the amount of things we needed to shred around here.  Our file folders were getting pretty thick!

My husband couldn’t wait to open this shredder and he was impressed before he had even turned it on.  It’s built really well, but it’s not industrial looking at all.  And it was really simple to set up.

Here are some of the great features that the POWERSHRED 63Cb has:

* Jam Blocker™ – blocks jams before they start.  If the Remove Paper icon is illuminated, there is too much paper for the shredder to power through.  Or if lights up while shredding, the shredder will pause and you just set it to reverse to remove the paper.

I don’t even want to tell you how often our other shredder jammed, let’s just say it was more often than not.

* SafeSense Technology® – stops shredding immediately when hands touch the paper opening.

We don’t have little ones around a lot, but when they are over, I’m glad I don’t have to worry about them slicing off a finger or two around my shredder.  Well for that matter, I’m glad I don’t have to worry about my husband losing a digit either!

* Energy Savings System™ – Save energy in four ways.  Sleep Mode shuts down shredder after two minutes of inactivity.

With the electricity prices so high around the area we live, I’m ALWAYS looking at ways to save electricity so I was really glad that this shredder has such a neat feature.

  1. Our shredder died (well, technically, it was still working – but it smoked, sputtered, and smelled like burning rubber).

    I like that Fellowes has so many options – I am in the market for one that is safe to have around kids and won't jam, so the 63Cb looks like the model for me.

  2. The SafeSense feature is genius with young children around. I could certainly use the peace of mind and security a good shredder would offer.

  3. I am so bad about throwing away documents without so much as tearing them. Maybe with a shredder I would remember.

  4. I have a Fellowes shredder with the no jam technology on it too and I really like how well it works. I always feel like I'm overworking it, but it never seems to complain and it does get days off. 🙂

  5. We do have a shredder, but could actually use a new one. I like the features of this shredder! Thank you for the great review!

  6. I picture you as one of those people who take pictures of all their paperwork and then shred the paper immediately.

  7. I am so glad I saw this. Our shredder died a couple years ago and we haven't taken the time to replace it. I like that this one has an energy saving component!
